I guess you could call Bette Midler a clotheshorse . . . but honey, you should see the clothes.
When I met the performer like whom there is no other, she was wearing deep – cuffed ecru slacks and a revealingÂ red and white polka dot something. Actually, I think it was a bikini top. This is in a put – on – the – dog French restaurant, mind you. Anyway, the piece de resistance was that on each strap she had pinned a pair of two – inch square red dice.
It is needless to point out – if you have ever seen Miss Midler in person or on the Johnny Carson show – that she is built like Diana of Ephesus and the mostly male luncheon crowd was captivated . . . with the dice, no doubt.
